5th Year Anniversary of "Little Hokum Rag"

"The Creature" painting, 2006, by Amy Crehore

On Feb. 18th, it will be Little Hokum Rag's 5th year anniversary. I plan to do some things to celebrate. Stayed tuned for another contest to win art. Meanwhile, have a look at my archives. For instance, here's a very happy memory from the summer of 2006, Santa Monica, CA:

Fascinating Human Forms

Sculpture by Li Xiaofeng
Sculpture by Anders Krisár

Artist Li Xiaofeng likes to buy shards of broken porcelain recovered from ancient archeological digs for his sculptures. There is an interesting article about him with more images at Yatzer.

At Yatzer, I also read about a new book called "Doppelganger, Images of the Human Being" by Gestalten which features artists who are interested in the human form, like Anders Krisar. His woven human torso is shown above.
